I found out last Friday that I have GD and have been sent home to monitor my blood sugars. They have been all over the place despite my best efforts. The midwife told me that there is a slight increased risk of stillbirth, and after many fertility treatments over the years and 3 more recent miscarriages, the thought of losing this baby is more than I can bear. I was sent home with a booklet about the glycemic index, and I've been trying to follow it, but it's more of a suggesions list than a diet plan. So I've looked online and it seems that things on the list the hospital gave me are different to what GI diets for diabetes say. For instance I was told to lay off the fruit, but then I read it's good. The same with milk. I'm hungry all the time and seriously craving really carby sugary things that I know I can't have. I'm completley confused and upset, my blood readings ave been higher than they want them to be, and I called the hospital twice yesterday to let them know, but I still haven't heard back. I'm already on Metformin due to PCOS, so I guess my sugars are in bad shape. I just want to lay down and cry and cry. I want my mum, but she passed away 8 years ago. Hubby is great but he doesn't seem to get the very real fear I have about losing the baby. I can't break down at home as I don't want to upset DS who has also lost 3 siblings due to my MC's. I just this baby out now so I know she's safe and sound. Sorry for the pity party, I just had to share with someone.
